Melbourne's train network is at a tipping point and will struggle to cope within a few years unless high-capacity signalling is introduced, the state government's transport boss has warned.
Days after Premier Daniel Andrews accelerated plans to build a new Metro rail tunnel through the CBD, Public Transport Victoria chairman Ian Dobbs has welcomed the move but says more is needed in the shorter term to "buy some time" and alleviate strain across the network.
Andrews needs to hurry up and build infrastructure. If he does not fix the immediate issues the public will loose site of the bigger picture.
Andrews has not announced a rail link to the airport which is desperately needed.
He has announced the extension of Mernda I believe.
